ambassador stevens? special report, investigations, death and deceit in benghazi. from washington, d.c., here is bret baier. >> it looked like this election was all about the economy, but that changed when terrorists murdered four americans at the united states consulate in benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11. americans had questions. who did this and how? should our government have seen it coming? did president obama tried to hide the truth? is this a huge scandal that exposes a failed obama foreign policy? is mitt romney just saying it is. tonight we'll try to give you answers. we'll walk you step by step through the terror of that day and break down the political maneuvering that has followed. we begin with a series of frightening developments and troubling decisions leading up to that horrific night. it's a story you haven't heard. it's told by a man who tried to prevent what happened on september 11th, 2012. >> did you have a close relationship with the ambassador? >> i lived and worked with him for two months when he came on to the time i left, yeah. >> bret: no one understands more the

of ams am -- ambassador chris stevens here is how he wrapped up his resolve. >> obama: no act of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation. alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. >> bill: right. so the idea that then these republicans -- i understand the romney campaign because you know, they were so embarrassed by this whole thing because mitt romney made a fool of himself. i understand but for the media to give it any credence whatsoever, for the media to report on it, as abc news and cbs did last night and i'm sorry -- i saw cbs and nbc. i don't know what abc did. they probably did the same thing they are irresponsible. totally, totally irresponsible. the fact that president obama did not say the words peter what happened yesterday in benghazi was an act of terror. i mean do you have to say those specific words in order to get credit for calling it an act of terror? no! come on! let's not parse every single word. we're not third graders. again, i understan

ship picked up in turkey on september 6th, five days before chris stevens and sean smith and former navy seals were killed during the assault in benghazi. according to a september 14th report by the times of london, 400 tons of cargo on board, some of it humanitarian and also holding a large consignment of weapons headed for the remembers. it's a huge warning sign that the situation on the ground is vastly more dangerous than the state department may have realized. even before the well organized massive attack in benghazi that knew the threat from al-qaeda was large and growing. >> what do you think al-qaeda looks like today? >> it's much stronger. it's spreading out. >> there is no question in your mind that al-qaeda is stronger in north africa today than it was four years ago? >> absolutely. they have all kinds of new organizations. >> so it suggests that the white house doesn't get it. >> the problem is, they are avoiding reality, bad things happen when you avoid reality and we have just seen that. >> we are in a stronger position today than we were four years ago. >> t.j. crowle
to be a administration cover up in the failures on the deaths of chris stevens and three others. lieutenant colonel andrew wood told cbs news that his request for beefed-up security was rejected by washington. the man in charge of all state department personnel is under patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. fox news learned that the day after the attack kennedy privately briefed the staffers and told them it appears to be a sophisticated attack. but four days after that briefing, the u.s. ambassador susan rice offered a different narrative. she said rather that we don't see at this point that it was a coordinated premeditated attack. it was three days before any senior u.s. official stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> the americans deserve the truth on what happened. you will find that the bits and pieces are coming out. we are both troubled by what we saw unfold. in the end the truth ought to be done and people ought to be held accountable if bad decisions were mad. >> the u.s. has obtained footage of when the attacks were actually underway. that should shed
this is brand-new state department documents revealed that ambassador stevens was deeply worried about security threats in the weeks and days before americans were killed. here is more on breaking details >> ambassador stevens and three other americans are dead. there are a lot of questions to be answered. we saw a good deal of activity in the compound. its burned out shell. you can still smell smoke. a blood -- hand prints on the wall. place ransacked. as for those questions. one credible witness, they chanted bloodthirsty slogans before the attack. there was protest first. we are told it was multipronged and frankly we did not see a lot of evidence of that. we did see defenses that prove to be minimal. we are told various member groups were denying overall responsibility. one former militia leader we spoke to -- we counted as many five cameras around the compound the images could prove to be very revealing. >> gregg: we apologize. greg palkot one of the very few reporters has been able to make his way that benghazi. he is streaming live. obviously a lot of video and audio inter
approximately 25 people, fired shots, explosions heard as well. ambassador stevens and four embassy personnel are in the compound safe haven. it said a friendly militia was helping to fight off the attack. soon, another said it was over. the fighting in benghazi has stopped, the compound cleared. a response team on site, attempting to locally personnel later, a known terror group was said to be linked. nbc tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter and has called for an attack on nbc tripoli. the next day the same terror group denied they were involved, causing more confusion. >> you know, posting something on facebook is not in and of itself evidence, and i think it just underscores how fluid the reporting was at the time and continues for sometime to be. >> reporter: shortly before midnight on 911, another e-mail reported that the assault on benghazi had escalated. the current shelter is under attack by mortar fire, today, reports of injuries the white house and state department says there were hundreds and even thousands of reports that night, and in the follo
when ambassador stevens lost his life he was torteured. >> i have reports that the body was torteured. it is not a pleasant thing to talk about. and seals that were there were not part of the security force and on a different mission and the seals run to the sound of fire. they did their job and duty and were great americans and unfortunately it was not a spontanous attack when ambassador rice said it was a spontanous even and our relationship with israel and never been better. that is misleading. our relationship with israel is strained . they are preparing to do a unilateral attack and our position over seas is dangerous and fragile. >> brian: we understand that intercepts show groups were talking to each other and bragging after the killing of four americans, including the ambassador and two navy seals and it makes it seem that an operation is under foot and it seems there is a special operation to go get these goys. would you support that? >> absolutely. you have to show leadership and policy of appeasement of apology doesn't work. our friends over seas understand strength and ame
chris stevens cited as the highlight of his time in the country. achieving genuine democracy and broad-based growth will be a long and difficult process. we know that from our own history. more than 235 years after our own revolution, we are still working toward that more perfect union. so one should expect setbacks along the way, times when some will surely ask if it was all worth it. but going back to the way things were in december 2010 isn't just undesirable, it is impossible. so this is the context in which we have to view recent events and shape our approach going forward. and let me explain where that leads us. now, since this is a conference on the maghreb, that's where i'll focus. because, after all, that's where the arab revolution started and where an international coalition helped stop a dictator from slaughtering his people and where just last month we saw such disturbing violence. but let's look at what's actually happening on the ground. especially in light of recent events. we have to, as always, be clear-eyed about the threat of violent extremism. a year of democratic

, not only at our post but at our annex. and we couldn't find ambassador stevens. and we were trying desperately to figure out what had happened to him and to shaun smith and the others who were there. so it was an intense, you know, long ordeal for everybody at the state department and in libya. >> now, i know the investigation is going to play itself out. >> right. >> but in the short-term, the state department officials and diplomatic security admit that requests for security were denied because they said that it was adequate based on the threat level. did you get that intelligence about the threat level? or was this a bad security decision? >> you know, elise, one of the things we're going to explore in the accountability review that i have ordered is exactly what happened. and what can we do to make sure that we learn lessons from it. nobody wants to get to the bottom of this more than i do. i knew chris stevens. i've had a chance to meet the families of the other three men who we lost. i take this very personally. so we're going to get to the bottom of it. and then we're going
? there is a much to talk about. chris stevens is really an american hero, and i think anybody who knew him and knew what he was trying to do there would agree with that. he went to benghazi for a reason, because benghazi is really where these kinds of battles take place. these are battles between forces of extremism and forces of moderation. news flash, benghazi is a very dangerous place. he knew that and the state department knew that. that is why the secretary has appointed on accountability review board. that is why they're doing investigations to see if all the right decisions were taken. let me tell you also what happened after the ambassador was killed. tens of thousands of people marched in the streets of benghazi, and they said, with signs, chris stevens is our friend. they overran the militias. the president of libya ordered all militias to be shut down. this is a country going through an incredibly difficult time. from the premise of your question, it sounds as if you would rather have supported gaddafi's still being there. the fact is, without american leadership, gaddafi would still be
of took place in libya than president obama. he knew ambassador and stevens and respected and admired him. this is an instance where the president has been thoughtful. every statement he and secretary rice made were statements that came from information from the intelligence community. the investigation will go on. the president will gather the truth. tamron, if we look at this president's record versus the rhetoric on the other side, we can see under president obama we're more secure than we've ever been. he's done all he can to bring terrorists to justice, and you can expect whoever did harm to ambassador stevens and these other fine patriots will be brought to justice by president obama. >> patrick, we've seen so many things over this election season, many inappropriate things to say, sxadly we have to report on another comment made on the campaign trail. this one, jason thompson, the son of tommy thompson. he was at an event in wisconsin, an rnc event in that state. let me play what he had to say regarding the president and where he was born. let me play this. >> we have the opportuni
.s. ambassador chris stevens? today, hours before the debate gets under way tonight, secretary of state hillary clinton spoke out declaring that the responsibility is hers. abc's senior foreign affairs correspondent martha raddatz is here. martha? >> reporter: good evening, diane. secretary clinton has said very little about the investigation into the deaths of the four americans, but she is now saying she is the one who should shoulder the blame. >> i take responsibility. i'm in charge of the state department. >> reporter: on the eve of this presidential debate, growing questions and political controversy are still raging over the deaths of the americans in libya. >> the president and the vice president certainly wouldn't be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. >> reporter: in last week's vice presidential debate joe biden said the white house was unaware of security requests from state department officials in libya who had told congress of those requests just the day before. and they wanted more security there. >> well, we weren't told they wanted mo
, the pentagon and fbi that an attack was underway and that ambassador stevens was in the compound. just two hours later another e-mail indicated the libyan extremist group claiming responsibility for the attack on social media websites. >> so what you saw in the e-mails in that realtime was a real description and if you noticed, there was no talk of demonstrations or other things. and it was clearly very early identified with a terrorist affiliate of aqim. >> reporter: clinton said "cher picking a document does not tell the whole story. an initial claim of responsibility is not solid evidence." >> posting something on facebook is not in and of itself evidence. and i think it just underscores how fluid the reporting was at the time and continued for some time to be. >> reporter: the group denied being responsible the next day. in fact, intelligence officials do not believe this libyan group is solely responsible. a u.s. government official tells cnn that the latest intelligence suggests a core group of suspects that launched the initial part of the attack on the mission was somewhere between
knew stevens. he worked on the foreign -- the ambassador. he worked on the foreign relations committee for dick lugar when i was the ranking member. the president knew him and knew his family. this is something we want to get to the bottom of to make sure that something like this never happens again. >> before i let you go, i have to ask you about your debate. as you know, a lot of people noticed your demeanor. when not answering a question, let's put it this way, you seemed to be having a good time. have you watched back tape of that debate, and would you do it the same way all over again? >> well, i think, you know, you can always improve. one of the things in a two-minute response and a four-minute format, you know, some of the things that were said were absolutely incredulous. it was unbelievable some of the responses i was getting, so the answers, he's a good man. he's a solid guy. i like him. i wasn't laughing at him. i was laughing at some of the answers that were coming forward. >> mr. vice president, thank you for your time this morning. >> thank you. >> we appreciate it. >> t

-election chances. first, the time line. on september 11th, u.s. ambassador to libya chris stevens was assassinated in benghazi. on september 129. president obama condemned the attack and then flew though las vegas for a campaign event. on september 126th, u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice called the assassination a spontaneous attack. but the same day a top libyan official said the assassination was preplanned. on september 19th, matthew olsen, director of the president's counter terrorism unit confirmed that the assassination was indeed a terror attack why did it take 8 days to confirm that pat caddell is angry about it. >> if a president of either party, i don't care whether it was jimmy carter or bill clinton or george bush or ronald reagan or george h.w. bush had had a terrorist incident and gotten on an airplane after saying something and flown off to a fund raisener las vegas, they would have been crucified. it would have been, it should have been barack -- equivalent for barack obama of george bush's flying over katrina moment. >> but nothing was said at all. and nothing will
stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall? there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know, the pictures we've seen publicly of his body doesn't look like he did, but you don't know. and all those sorts of bits of information, it is true, it would be a less valuable crime scene now because people have rifled through it, but there's always some value
. they are democratic state senate majority peter steven horsford and republican danny tarkanian. let us begin. mr. tarkanian, a coin toss determined you're up first. >> thank you and thank you to pbs for hosting this debate and giving people an opportunity to hear from their candidates about important issues. these are part of forms for the public to see the differences and the contrast between each of the candidates. this is so important that i offered to debate my opponent and each of the different counties in which this district represents. this is a large we did the largest and most diverse districts in the state with a lot of different interests -- this is the largest and most of first district in the state with a lot of different ages. unfortunately, my opponent declined to do so. over the past nine months, i travel throughout the district and talk to the people from these communities. we discussed the issues that affect them and some solutions we hope to solve. i look forward to talking about those solutions today and i appreciate you watching. >> thank you. senator steven horsford, your o
was still underway, when we did not know where chris stevens was ambassador chris stevens and certainly did not know he'd been killed and romney was already accusing the president of making a partisan political attack against the president for being responsible for this attack. president obama i thought one of the strongest moments last night, two first he took full responsibility. >> yes. >> bill: this idea that he's trying to throw hillary under the bus, he said i'm the commander-in-chief, the buck stops here. >> right. >> bill: then he turned to mitt and said the idea that you accused me, here. >> the suggestion that anybody on my team, whether the secretary of state our u.n. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we've lost four of our own governor is offensive. that's not what we do. >> it is offensive it's deeply offensive. he called it exactly like it is. just think back to the 9/11 attack of 2001. also an intelligence failure also where the president ignored signs, but we weren't prepared for that. what was his response to the democratic party the? you sa
to ambassador stevens? >> no specific threats to him per se. but take a look at this facebook page the committee released not only a facebook page but it was one of this extremist groups that warned not only about -- there was a picture of chris stevens -- i think we're going to bring that picture up. but also said that they were very concerned about drone attacks in libya. and there was a u.s. drone actually, wolf, that actually targeted this group in libya, one of their training camps. >> elise, thanks very much for that report. let's get to our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin. she's been talking to her sources. she's getting reaction. what are you learning, jessica? >> wolf, the white house is not commenting on the document release, senior white house officials continue to maintain that in time officials back up what the administration was saying all along that this will prove to be not an attack that had been preplanned and in time we will probably learn that what susan rice had said on that morning show was accurate. but we will have to wait and see that over time as more int
-muslim film. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the assault. neither the white house nor the state department has reacted to the release of the e-mails just yet. and we are hearing now the obama campaign is giving the des moines register the okay to report the contents of its conversation with the president in an editorial board meeting yesterday. initially, the white house had insisted that the president's remarks would be off the record. editor rick green posted his reaction online saying the voters deserve to hear what the president had to say. he insisted that the restrictive parameters of the interview would not impact the paper's ultimate endorsement which is out on saturday. but green emphasized what the president said would have played well with the base and undecided voters and those voters deserve to hear what he had to say. it seems like now we will. we'll be back after the break. parker posey. she's the star of "a mighty wind" and no, that's now what comes out of rush limbaugh. only on cu
